Tara Nevins: "Um, not to be negative or anything but, you think maybe somebody could
turn down these lights a little's kinda, painful. Well, that one, that
white one there....yeah, thank you."

Jeb Puryear: "Awww....let the party begin. You weren't being negative, you were just,
like, saying what you wanted."

The Kingdom is a club that is located in an alley in the Shockoe Bottom
district of Richmond, opposite the 17th Street Farmers' market. The Bottom,
as it is sometimes called, is east of downtown, along the James River. It
has been a center of Richmond nightlife for the past two decades (I am
told). The neighborhood does have a bit of an edge after dark, so one is
well advised not to wander too far afield. Brenda, Kevin, John Bischman,
and I had dinner at a pretty decent Ethiopian restaurant on 17th Street, at
the mouth of Walnut Alley, in which the club is situated. The Kingdom
itself is an intimate venue, with a balcony (closed to the general public
that evening) and pretty decent sound. John and Kevin tell me that this due
to the wooden walls and beams.

I probably should let the set list speak for itself. "Voice in My Head" in
the third slot was unexpectedly early in the set for this song (or so it
seemed), but its intricate jam augured well for what was to come. I cannot
recall the last time I heard "Do It for Love" and "Lifetime of a Fool"
performed live. The show really took off with "I Love My Tribe." Its
composer seemed surprised (pleasantly, one hopes) by the enthusiastic
chorus of Roberge, Bischman, Deckman McGee, Hook, Roberge, and Dante, who
knew most of the lyrics to a song that has maybe been performed once or
twice. "Be the Change" was the perfect follow-up, and the chorus lit into
that one, too. Note the sequencing of rarities ("Lifetime of a Fool," "The
Ones You Love"), Donna turbine effect ("Hey Trudy"), lovely new Tara song
(new to me, at least), terrific new Jeb song ("I Can Fly"), and then
another rarity and personal favorite, "Big Parade."

It was just wonderful to spend this evening with all the great people I've
met. Heartfelt thanks to all of you for being who you are and for so many
kindnesses. I love my tribe.

Thanks John. Glad we brought all our mics and cables.....taught me a thing or two about hanging them properly. If I was there by myself, I probably would've stand taped back by the soundboard, and it would not have come as well as this show did. See you soon.

Subject: Awesome mix
Nice mix Capn. Just the perfect addition of SBD to fill in the vocals without losing the room sound!
